On the card for Gavin Darklighter in the X-Wing Miniatures Game (second edition), we see Gavin Darklighter in his E-Wing shooting at something that looks to me a lot like just regular aircraft as we know it in real life. What ship from Star Wars is that?

It is Orbital jumper:

The orbital jumper was a light shuttle produced by Poranji. Not hyperspace-capable, orbital jumpers were popular on Core Worlds such as Coruscant for travel in near-planetary space. Vessels of this type were used by high-ranking military and government officers for travel on short notice during the Black Fleet Crisis.

  • @Valorum indeed =) Sep 8 at 18:43
  • Those pictures clearly do not match. Compare the positioning of the central fin and the under-wing engines, for example.

  • @Buzz agree. Still that could be different models or just some small mistake from the side of the artist, who drew those pictures. Sep 8 at 21:45
